For me travel is a way of finding out about places and the people that live in them. As a journalist and as an artist am most interested in stories or the narratives of people's lives: the choices they've made in their respective journeys. In my travels I am looking for places that off from the beaten track. yet they have their own distinct repute. I love the mountains, hiking, camping etc
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Would like to connect with people who are like minded, who like exchanging what they have learnt during their travels. Those interested in media and art are a definite plus.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Lived a week in Almora (Uttarakhand) at Khim da's hotel with a motley group of residents from all over the world. My stay there was most memorable because of the conversations we had and the stories we told each other about our past.
